    As someone that hasn't served, I thank every single branch and every single person that has served. So for those that have protected my right to be a total dumbass, thank you!!

    Most service members that I have known (family and friends) have been Marines. I know some of them have been to hell and back. Some were even left in hell. Figuratively of course because we all know there are no Marines left behind.

    Same/same with all branches. Again, thank you all.

    My dad was a Naval Korean War vet and my father-in-law was a Marine pilot for 3 tours in Vietnam and they both are very proud of their branches. My grandfathers, uncles, and great uncles all served so I’ve always carried a bit of guilt that I didn’t. If I could do it over again I’d likely go into the Air Force.

    I served in the Marines, nephew in the Army, nephew in Marines , 6 uncles all army and my gramps Army. I've got some nice rides from the Navy, trained with guys in the Army and see some kickass Air Force men scattered about. So my pick is the Coast Guard.

    Obviously it is the one that you served in (USMC!), however as I have aged I see some brilliance out of all the branches. I have a cousin currently in the Army and one in the Navy and another served in The Corps as well. My grandfather and father both served in The Army and just shook their heads when I made my decision.

    I served in the Navy, and am proud I did!

    I have met some awesome people, done awesome things, and traveled to incredible places!
    Medically dropped from an elite program, which never sat well.

    But I have visited over 20 different countries, met the queen of England and had lunch with her, survived a plane crash (belly landing on 1 landing gear... but crash sounds more exciting), been launched recovered off the deck of an aircraft carrier, and almost drowned while aboard and inside a ship.

    Navy for me!
    Honor and thanks to all who served, and are currently serving.

    Coast Guard is only part of the military during times of war. There's no declared war right now. Try again.

    My father served in the Air Force for over 29 years. I spent 6 years active U S Navy as a Corpsman/EMT who served alongside the Marines. Also 4 years active duty Air Force and 16 years Air Force Reserves; 26 total years. I have a brother who served Air force and one who passed while on Active duty Army who serve 20+ years. During my service i served with all branches and have been working for the DOD for 12 years now. They are all good, jobs are different and without one, they would all suffer. Bless them all when we have a day off, they don't. And thank you all for stepping up my brothers and Sisters- OOH RAH!

    Easiest answer. Army.

    Navy only cares about boats, Airforce about planes. Marines are probably the goat.
